Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) expected to miss 'a few weeks'

Kansas City Chiefs standout receiver Tyreek Hill had to be transported to a local Jacksonville hospital and is expected to miss "a few weeks" after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday's 40-26 win over the Jaguars, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder updated reporters on Hill's status following the win, detailing the precautions they took with the star wide receiver.

"[Hill] had a sternoclavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum," Burkholder said. "Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. If it goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there's more problems. His came back posteriorly and he didn't have any medical issues but we still transported him to Baptist Medical Center [Jacksonville] and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg who is an ortho-trauma physician."

Fantasy Impact: 

Watkins had a huge day in Week 1 and will likely be a popular add this week. Kelce could also benefit from more targets but so could RBs Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy. Williams had six catches on the day while McCoy added one. Hardman, Thomas and Robinson all move up a spot on the depth chart at WR.
